    Hi all,

    My appologies to HyperWap original author, this is an unofficial firmware based on Linksys 2.08 and including the following hacks from HyperWap:
    # Adjustable Transmit Power
    # 13 Wireless Channels
    # 'Boot Wait' flash protection
    I didn't added Antenna Select.

    WARNING: this is untested firmware so be sure you can recover your unit before testing in case it does not work.

    The firmware can be downloaded from:

    I have upload the firmware 2 hours ago... All is good with 2.08 version. I have now the transimt power adjustment. I test it with my WRE54G and all is stable.

    It works.... and quite nicely!

    Be aware though, that many WAP54Gs might connect and pass data at 84mw, but for best throughput I found 45wm to be optimum.

    It works successfully!

    Will telnetd be added to in firmware? :)

    works for me

    I've got WAP54G EU version (7 leds). Previously i've used HyperWAP 2.07. Firstly i've flashed unit with linksys official fw 2.08 and then with this one. Seems to work, stable:)

    THX :thumb:

    My question - is there any fw with shell (eg telnet or ssh) access for WAP54G which will work on my AP?

    Yep, I flashed from hyperwap 1.0 to this no worries. It has fixed one of my problems - getting a wap54g AP talking to another wap54G client (which was a Linksys fix from 2.07 (hyperwap 1.0 base code) to 2.08). I need the extra power in addition to the fixes in 2.08.

    So thanks for that, much appreciated!

    Is it possible to add antenna selection? (because I use an external antenna)

    thanks anyway for this firmware!

    I upgraded to this firmware from HyperWAP and did not encounter any problem. However I notice that the downgrade firmware page http://(your linksys)/fw-conf.asp is no longer available. I wonder if I can go back to either HyperWAP or v2.08

    I tried this firmware with my WAP54G V2. My MAC address changed to 00:90:4C:60:04:00 from the original Linksys MAC address. Now I cannot change back the original MAC address even I load back the official Linksys firmware. Anyone know how to change MAC address?

    I upgraded my WAP54G to this firmware from HyperWAP and it works fine.
    What impressed me is that old settings were not lost after upgrading!
    Is this normal?

    gvala: depending on the code you had beforehand, it can be normal. Though I think 2.07 and 2.08 had the same nvram so it would keep the settings. And since rylorin's HyperWAP is based off the 2.08 fw, it should keep the settings.

    Now, my testimony:

    Been running rylorin's HyperWAP for several months now. Before, with HyperWAP 2.07, my WAP kept rebooting or crashing and needing a reboot. Haven't had a single reboot needed for quite some time now with it. Mine is a v2. Thanks again rylorin! :thumb:

    exactamente la misma pregunta, ¿como cambio la MAC Address 00904C600400 por la original u otra?

    porque no podría instalar repetidoras o modos AP Client si a todos les pusiera HyperWap tendrían todos la misma MAC y así no podría configurarlos
    :help: :help: :help:

    ¿hay forma de hacerlo por Telnet?

    somos muchos con el mismo problema!!!!
